It lacked the intensity that I remember from my days. When I went and there were no stands there was basically a baying mob along the sideline to add to the pressure. (Usually from one side but I'm biased  ;D).

It still wasn't a bad game. I didn't think UU played with much urgency when they were down. I always felt UU had better players than Queens (it's rare I remember that to not have been the case) over all the years I've known but Queens have always been better than the sum of their parts for whatever reason. UU should have way more sigersons over the years than they have.

Game was a good watch up to the last kick but it t isnt QUB v UUJ of the 2000s where every player is a household name/all ireland winner


Why is this the case? Are they still county players just that Ulster is in a relative lull or are there less county players in college? Or college students no longer making county?

The commentary was the best but it was a nice treat to be sitting in front of the fire on a Tuesday in January watching a Sigerson cup match live. Hopefully Jerome keeps streaming the games.

Agree with the standard, nowhere near where it used to be. UU team would look far stronger if Canavan & Loughlin were named from the start and Connor Glass/Ethan Doc not available at the minute due to Glen's All Ireland Club run.

Does anyone have the full draw for the next round?

Is Glass a student ? What age is he ?

The definition of a student in UU has for a long time being differed to what everyone else thinks what it means.

I think Glass is around 25 now, done a few years in Oz so went to uni a bit later than most. Yeah he does own a coffee shop in Maghera.

The daddy of them all Jim Mc Guinness had more colleges than clubs in a golf bag.

A number of counties in Ulster don't allow established players to play Sigerson any more.

Which established players weren’t allowed to play last night? Genuine question as didn’t think that was the case.

Doubtful if it's an actual University.

Really? Know Turbitt and couple of others were playing Sigerson last year. Not sure what other Armagh lads are at college these days anyway tbh.
